Hi everyone. I've been playing with this a couple of days as advised by Iņigo and here's my thoughts.
-I maintain my library via a computer and I just copy stuff to my readers for, well, reading and proofreading with annotations, etc. so I don't need the metainfo edition stuff (read: I won't work with it a lot, ever) but I think it is very cool, almost exactly what I'd dream of if I needed it. Good job!
-I mostly navigate the folder hierarchy in my SD card or go directly to recent/last folders so the streamlined UI would be perfect for me if Navigator were integrated on DR800+/MackxPatch and could be launched at system startup, effectively replacing CTB. Currently I have to open 'shortcuts' and launch Navigator, while I am just one tap away from 'navigating' via CTB upon boot...
-Granted CTB wastes a lot of screen space, but Navigator's font is too small and I don't need to cram so much info on the screen anyway. I'd prefer the font size to be selectable.
-If file names include the extension, the 'type' column is kind of redundant. Wouldn't it be better to take extensions off the file name column so there's a little more space for long titles, and put a small question mark (or whatever) on the type column next to 'unknown'/unregistered extensions/types?
-I rarely need to look at timestamps, others won't need extensions. What about some dialogue box to specify what columns to show, and in what order?
-It would be very nice to know what files are [not] annotated.
-The zebra-colouring of the table certainly improves readability, but it would be better if it were white-and-grey instead of grey-and-greyer.
-Make more conspicuous the column destined to select files for multi-file operations.
I know Iņigo says he is mostly off DR development now, but iRex is dead anyway, so this still looks like our fattest chance to see improvements some day... ; )
On a different note -- @rvs, you say you modified the font used by CTB to save screen space. Would you mind explaining how you did it, or linking to a how-to?
